|Come, O Divine Messiah||1|
|Adapted from CABRISSEAU|
- Come, O Di-vine Mes-si-ah;
O haste, we're wea-ry wait-ing thee;
On earth naught de-sire
Save thee, sweet One in Three
O Quick de-scend bi time take wings;
Else our poor hearts no peace will know,
But feirc-er with im-patience glow.
- Wilt leave they Fat-ther's home,
For us woho lang-uish here with love;
And'neath our fet-ter groan
A wait-ing aid from a-bove
O come! O come! bid time take wing;
We'll deck our hearts with bril-liants rare,
And Welcome meet for thee pre-pare.
- Think not up-on our base-ness,
Take Vengance not up-on our crime;
But with us yet have patience; make us all thine in time.
For art thou, Our Lord and God?
To Whom should we for refuge flee
If not O Lord, our God to thee?
